Koen Augustijnen & Rosalba Torres Guerrero / Siamese Cie


Lament: the ritual of grief; the healing properties of music and singing; the participation, not just of the mind but also of the body in the grieving process. In an era where mourning rituals have no place in Western societies, the famous Belgian choreographic duo Siamese Cie (Koen Augustijnen and Rosalba Torres Guerrero), fascinated by this old Greek tradition, transfer the traditional moiroloi (laments) of Epirus onto the area of contemporary dance, following thorough research.

Nine Greek dancers with a background in traditional dance, alongside Greek and international musicians, join forces with Siamese Cie, inviting us to reconcile ourselves with loss through the power of music and dance.
